Dividends4Life: Safe Dividend Stocks Yielding North of 7%

Safe Dividend Stocks Yielding North of 7%

Let us all praise Ben Bernanke for flooding the bond market with gazillions of dollars. In doing so, he creates artificial demand for bonds, which drives prices up and yields down. That means tons of money has flowed out of the bond market (because yields stink) and into the stock market, sending stocks soaring as all that money finds a home. On the negative side, bond yields now stink. If you were a fixed income investor, you’ve had to look elsewhere for yield.

Fortunately, there are some very secure investments that pay far more in interest than boring bonds ever did. They may lack the full faith and credit of the U.S. government, but these days that seems like a dicey proposition anyway. Here are five such investments that deliver solid and safe yields: Permian Basin Royalty Trust (PBT), The Sabine Royalty Trust (SBR), Linn Energy (LINE), Hercules Technology Growth Capital (HTGC) and Ashford Hospitality Trust Preferred D Shares (AHT).
